Spring Is Coming And It Is About Time!
Spring is just around the corner. The crocus and witch hazel are blooming. Spring bulbs are emerging. A few early crops have been planted – carrots, lettuce, spinach. Soon the last frost will be over. The greenhouse is full of plants and seedlings – many in bloom. I am running out of room and still have quite a bit more to plant.
I am really looking forward to this years garden. More vegetables, more flowers, more fruits are what I am hoping for. Canning season is also just around the corner. When that time comes I will be working in a tiny kitchen trying to get everything put up for winter use, but knowing how much money that will save us will make it worthwhile.
I have been thinking for some time of writing a book on homesteading filled with tips, recipes and more. I think I should attempt that as soon as I finish my book on organic gardening. The economy is only getting worse and maybe this information would help others.
I also need to get my fruit buckets filled with the smoothies that will deter bugs. That needs to be done this weekend. I need to find the recipe and buy the bananas. I think I have the other ingredients.
I am off now to work in the yard a bit, then I will spend the rest of the day writing. After all the more I write today, the less I will need to write tomorrow and the faster my new book will be completed.
